Chocolate Chip Scones

I recently bought a Nordicware scone pan and wanted to try it out. I found a recipe for Tea Scones in a vintage Lutheran cookbook. The recipe is really just a base recipe. There is no mention of additions like chocolate chips or some type of fruit. I’m going to keep playing around with the recipe until I get the chocolate chip amount perfect. I think I need to add more next time. They were delicious though.

My lovely godmother gave me the vintage snack set the scone is pictured on for Christmas last year. I have a total of 4 plates and 4 matching cups. There is a little round circle lip on the plate where you can set the cup. I had been wanting to get a vintage snack set for about a year and was absolutely stunned when I opened my gift. Neither my husband nor my mom told my godmother I really wanted a vintage snack set. It was like she read my mind! I believe she said she got it at an estate sale.

The tea pictured is Vanilla Jasmine from Tealuxe. I have a whole assortment of loose teas. Tealuxe also sells an excellent chamomile tea. Their monk’s blend is really good too. Another great source for loose tea is Upton Tea.

The weather is finally starting to cool off but now it’s been raining. A nasty thunderstorm with a lot of lightning woke me up this morning at 4:30 a.m. I couldn’t fall back asleep. I hate when that happens.

And now for a moving update. I’ve been talking to some realtors trying to narrow it down to a few agents to interview. We hope to have our home listed before the end of the month. I tested out contacting agents by email to see how quickly they respond. I asked some questions I already know the answers to just to see if they are patient and helpful. This has helped me eliminate some people right away.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day 🙂

    You’re welcome Vicki. Thanks for the good wishes with our move.

    Let me know how the cookies turn out when you make them. They are so yummy! I’m sure you’ll like them because you like coconut already. I make the cookie dough in my Kitchen Aid mixer and just mix the chocolate chips in by hand at the end. If you can find it, Flavorganics makes an excellent coconut extract. I buy it at Whole Foods.

    Nice cup and plate set. Very wonderful. When i saw your lovely scones and the title of your blog entry, i thought NEEDS MORE CHIPS! :o) I would also add dried cranberries probably if i made them. Not that i bake much! But i love what you made, looks so good. Your godmother has excellent tastes, and it appears she knows your tastes quite well. Wonderful!

    GMTA Kleo. Next time I’m definitely adding way more chocolate chips. I was also thinking after I get those perfected, I wanted to make cranberry scones, probably with a little orange zest too mixed in. You’re a mind reader today LOL

    Lovely scones! And the snack set is adorable as well. The idea of a little spot for your teacup is awesome.
